New Moon Magic 🌙
When the moon is new in the sky it is as if it's an idea that will grow a little every single second- always imperceptibly growing for 30 days until it hangs heavy and full in the night sky. Each moon has a different personality as well. Each new moon falls under a certain astrological sign that assigns it "personality traits", Or the mood of that moon. The moon as a planet represents emotions. So if the moon is in Cancer the lunar vibe will be very sensitive, touchy, intuitive and withdrawn. If it's in Leo the lunar vibe will be more playful and lionhearted.
This New Moon is in Scorpio. Scorpio is the Witching Hour of the zodiac. Planet of Birth, death, and rebirth. Time of Transformation and hidden undercurrents. Stinging psyches and breaking old tired patterns. Scorpio is in the Sky during Samhain and All Hallows' Eve and the Feast of All Saints and Dia de Muertos. The time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. The spirits of our ancestors are in the wings, waiting to be beckoned to bless and protect us.
The New moon is the perfect time to send out into the universe what you expect it to deliver. Ask and ye shall receive. Setting new moon intentions is one of the simplest, yet most powerful things you can do for yourself.
First things first. You need to smudge your space with a sage smudge, light some incense and light a white candle to create good clean energy. You can anoint your candle with any oil you like. I love to use lavender or peppermint oil. Close your eyes and Imagine a glow of white moony light illuminating the space and yourself. Imagine any color of light that feels good to you. It's cleansing and protecting you and your space. The stronger you can see it the stronger it is.
Next spend about 8-10 minutes doing a meditation visualizing roots coming out of your hip bones and growing deep into the earth. What are they made out of? What do they feel like? How deep can they grow? Imagine your root chakra glowing a deep ruby light. You're safe. You're grounded. Now.. What do you want?
I usually then take a bubble bath infused with 2 cups of Epsom salts 1 cup of sea salt and rose oil. Sometimes I put on relaxing music and just, in great detail, visualize what I want. I feel how happy I will be when I attain my desires. Now get out your journal and write down a list of things you would like to draw into your life. It can be anything. People, situations, events, traits in yourself you would like to adopt. Anything you want to draw in. List no more than 10. Write it down and don't revisit the list until the following new moon. I think you'll be surprised at what's transpired. I'm always in awe at how this simple ceremony works and you'll want to make it a monthly ritual when you see what your intent can weave into reality. Bright Blessings ∞
